She measures 1.52 m or 18 cm less than the regulation size to compete in the election of Miss Lorraine. Somewhat discriminating when you know that “most women in France are less than 1.70 m”, remarks Pauline Dauphin who, from the height of her 22 years, candidate for the election of Miss Small Beauty. Why ? “I want to break the codes! she assures.
“A normal girl”
Pauline Dauphin is a jack-of-all-trades, a little electric battery who oscillates between her job as an educational assistant at EPL Agro in Belleray, her training as a seamstress and her passion for nature. “I know how to put on boots,” she jokes, referring to a few hunting or fishing trips. “A real chameleon! » she adds, far from the tired image that we can have of misses and of these competitions for which she is passionate.
“I’m taking part because I don’t meet the criteria of society. »
Because Pauline Dauphin likes to repeat it at will: “I participate because I do not fit into the criteria of society. “Away from the canons and dictates, from a narrow image of the misses, she would like to “see a lambda girl with a scarf and a crown”. Tired of sexed images of women, “that we see a lot on social networks, especially from influencers”, she repeats, verb high, that “our sisters, our mothers do not look like that. They have pimples, stretch marks…”.
At a distance
Pauline Dauphin makes this “claim of women’s beauty” her own, assuming her curves, her differences, “feeling beautiful” and affirming her self-confidence. “We are all beautiful in our own way. »
Her physique, her transformations, however, she has not always easily accepted them… “As a teenager, I fell ill with the thyroid. I went from a 45 kg shrimp to 100 kg all of a sudden and I had a hard time accepting myself. »
From this experience, Pauline was able to make a strength and it is precisely the French association of thyroid patients that she will defend during a rather special competition… “It is specific to the Grand Est, but we are in distance. We each had challenges to accomplish. »
“We are all beautiful in our own way. »
No live therefore but a parade filmed on the theme of astrology. “It’s a bit frustrating but it’s another form of experience”, notes the one who feeds on each epic. The result will be revealed this Saturday, September 24 in Nancy.
If Pauline Dauphin manages to pass this milestone, she will have the honor of defending the Grand Est nationally, her association, and her vision of women’s beauty. Always straight in his boots.
